Spring Cleaning

What do you do with all your junk? I don’t mean the stuff that’s really worth something. I’m talking about things you’ve accumulated that aren’t individually what it would cost to sell them on eBay and ship them. Things like old cassette players, power adaptors for you-can’t-remember-what, ear buds from long-dead iPods, etc. Like you, I’ve got a bundle of this junk, and I need to get rid of it — to make room for more junk. But I don’t want to just throw it into the garbage and have it end up in a landfill. I’d rather give it to someone else who will throw it into their garbage and have it end up in a landfill.

Is there a website for this or a way to sell it on eBay? I’m happy to photograph and inventory it, but I need to sell it in large tranches — sorta like junk bonds. Got any ideas?

  1. donate it to goodwill.. they will give you a tax write off that is reasonable and people can reuse the stuff.


  2. Have a garage sale or stoop sale (if you live in the city). That’s what us old-timers used to do before eBay.


  3. Put it on Craigslist as freebies. Somebody out there wants it. (For free.)

    And if all else fails don’t just throw it out, some of that stuff is fairly toxic. Find an electronics recycling place.
